“I hate good taste. It’s the worst thing that can happen to a creative person”
– Jan Cremer
The Hul le Kes Cremer Jacket is named after Dutch painter and author Jan Cremer (1940). The sight of Cremer’s atelier being notoriously messy puts a smile on Sjaak’s face. Being a bit of a braggy controversial character in Dutch culture, Cremer’s paintings nonetheless fill us with inspiration.
This garment will be made from the vintage blanket you have selected. These vintage blankets are 100% wool and collected via our recycling partners or via donations people have made.
At our Manufacturing Studio we will do our best to make sure only the good parts of the vintage blankets are used. In some cases our Recovery Studio will make small repairs to the old material to make sure we can upcycle as much materials as possible.
